[Statistical processing of 15 years of ES material from the Psychiatric Clinic of the Budapest Medical University]

ORVOSI Kara

[In the struggle for the cure of mental illnesses, for the health of the human mind, one of the central issues was therapeutic optimism, therapeutic activitas. The sick person and society as a whole expect the best possible restitution from the doctor, and the doctor's duty as a practitioner is to take responsibility, to take the lead, to apply the most modern methods of treatment. ]

[Schizophrenia or schizophrenias]

DRIETOMSZKY Jenő, BRUNECKER Györgyi

[In analysing the development of the concept of "schizophrenia", both in terms of its professional history and its theoretical basis, authors adopt Nyirő's position that "...we cannot speak of schizophrenia, only of schizophrenics..." In the sense of Sternberg's concept, they narrow down their position by stating that a nosological approach and Leonhardian taxonomy are essential requirements for a substantive answer to the question.]

FORNÁDI Ferenc, BARTOS Valéria, ZSOMBÓK György, KAFFKA Károly

[On practical issues in mental health care ]

S. VARGA Katalin

[The number of mentally ill people is not decreasing. Due to overcrowding in hospital psychiatric wards, the number of patients in mental health institutions is constantly increasing. Adverse external influences are causing relapses and prolonged pathological conditions in the patient's environment. In order to provide better mental health care, the mental health network needs to be expanded with modern institutions.]

[The pathographic work of Gyula Nyirő]

VARGA Lajos, KŐMŰVES Géza, PISZTORA Ferenc

[Authors have analysed the pathographic work of Professor Gyula Nyirő. His first study, on Endre Ady, demonstrated the extreme, opposing poles of the genius' soul. His later pathographies - on Semmelweis and Csontváry - demonstrate the role of experience in shaping character and stimulating art. In Csontváry, he also drew attention to the fluctuations between the rational, the artistic and the pathological 'I', demonstrating that there was a time when the pathological stimulated the artistic as... tovább »

[Central and peripheral nervous system symptoms systemic lupus erythematosus ]

KOMÁR József, TÁRNOK Edit

[Authors present the case of a 38-year-old female patient admitted with hemiparesis. The medical history included episodes of unconsciousness. On observation, she developed polyneuritis in both lower limbs. The possibility of a space-occluding process was excluded. The subsequent febrile state, increased sedimentation, signs suggestive of renal impairment, and skin manifestations on the lower limbs led to the diagnosis of collagen disease. The patient became symptom-free and complaint-free on... tovább »
